I focus on offering a comprehensive approach to managing wealth. It begins with understanding your goals, family priorities, discussing your time horizon and risk tolerance. Together, we create a disciplined approach and written roadmap to get there. Our mission is to empower women, professionals and small business owners to growth your wealth and pursue life goals through a thoughtful and strategic plan.
Our investment style emphasizes socially responsible investing and environmental, social, governance (ESG) themes. With sustainable & impact investing, you can invest in causes and issues most important to you while staying on track to pursue your financial goals.

*Impact investing and/or Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) managers may take into consideration factors beyond traditional financial information to select securities, which could result in relative investment performance deviating from other strategies or broad market benchmarks, depending on whether such sectors or investments are in or out of favor in the market. Further, ESG strategies may rely on certain values based criteria to eliminate exposures found in similar strategies or broad market benchmarks, which could also result in relative investment performance deviating.
Our team is involved with local communities, assisting charitable organizations such as Project RELO. For more information about how we can help you pursue your goals and dreams, contact us at your convenience.
